Back once again like a veritable renegade master, here are this weeks top rugby stories from around the web. This week we have some impossible to avoid Six Nations highlights, though granted Italy Vs France doesn’t make the cut. Some Leigh Halfpenny wonderment and some good old fashioned laughing at commentators.
Says it all really, two great games of rugby, one of these a classic.
Leigh Halfpenny is not Just a Kicker
Brought to my attention on the fantastic Rugby Union Reddit it absolutely deserves repeated viewing.
John Inverdale has had better weeks
27 seconds of his life John Inverdale will surely never forget.
I do love a rugby story from an unusual source. So when this tale cropped up on my radar from The Adventist Review it was sure to get a mention. In brief A 15 year old adventist will now be able to play in the national schools final at Twickenham as it has been rescheduled for a week day. Good luck to him, though I fear for his hopes of gaining a professional contract if he continues to choose not to play on Saturdays.
I implore you to watch the clip to the finish as the last try of the four he scores is certainly worth watching. Undoubtedly, Oakham Under-15’s have a massive rugby prospect on their hands.
